Love Hurts

Like most girls I know, food is our best friend whenever we feel down, depressed or having a bad day. I even have a secret stash (e.g. chocolates, pistachio, macadamia nuts and more chocolates) in my room for occasional need of a pick-me-up.

And since my love was giving me a hard time last Friday, I thought some Japanese food will make me forget my suffering and somehow cheer my spirits up.

What we ordered

Complimentary appetizers

Spicy Tuna Sashimi - Php290.00

I have made it my mission to find the best Spicy Tuna in Manila and so far, Tanabe's version is probably in the 2nd spot as Miyabi's at Pan Pacific still tops my list. The level of spiciness is just enough to bite your tongue but no numbness feeling even after consecutive spoonfuls. As with the freshness of the Tuna, Tanabe never fails to deliver.

Chirashi Sushi - Php680.00

DB had Chirashi Sushi which had slices of Tuna, Ebi (Shrimp), Salmon, Tamago (Egg), Uni (Sea Urchin), Saba (Mackarel), Tako (Octopus), Unagi (Eel) and Ika (Squid). If you're undecided which Sashimi or Sushi to try, I would suggest getting Chirashi as everything is thrown into one plate! No more what if's or "I should have ordered that instead!".

Steak Kaku Bento - Php680.00


Since lunch earlier was extra disappointing, I thought of treating myself with a box of treats. Tanabe's Steak Kaku Bento definitely left me short of breath the moment I laid my eyes on my most prized possession that day. The bento comes with Miso Soup, Salad, Salmon and Tuna Sashimi, Chawanmushi, Yakimono, Tenderloin Steak, Rice and Dessert.

Tuna and Salmon Sashimi


I asked the waitress to cook my Tenderloin Steak medium since a hint of pink will mean that the juicy flavor is intact and the steak is not dry. I initially wanted it to be cooked medium rare but DB dismissed the idea because we're not sure of the steak's grade.

Taste and tender wise, the steak was amazing!

Strawberry Ice Cream

The shoes I wore that day gave me so much pain that I had blisters in both feet (I even had to put band-aids to be able to walk straight) but it was too pretty not to wear! #tiisganda

So yes, love hurts. My love affair with shoes that is.
